Re: I gusse it boils down to the sensor

Thank you all for replying, everything you said was very logical and i'm coming to the conclusion that it boils down to the sensor design and post processing,

Our sensors (mft) show a limited dynamic range and i think thats what makes the picture also looks flatter,

You can see it very well in Dpreview's compare tools when you compare a MFT with APS-C camera, or any other image

and also here:

Thanx again, i'll be waiting for some next gen sensors before i upgrade my GH1

The reason the ZD 50mm F2 can do it is because it has a combination of the right focal length and virtually uniform sharpness across the frame at F2. Faster legacy lenses can't do it because they are not sharp enough from corner to corner. There may be other lenses capable of it but I haven't seen any do it at this distance. An Olympus F2 SHG zoom could do it but you are talking big bucks and big heavy lenses. If you want "pop" the ZD 50mm F2 is the lens to get.
